The Nene is great for anyone who is just starting out in Freestyle/White Water or has done a moving water taster session and wants to take a step to the next level. Its a relatively small, easy to access course, great for coaching and a great place for a day out as a paddler or spectator. We shall be heading over for their “Park and Play” session as a group, you don’t need to book on but it can be worth ringing ahead a day or two in advanced just to check the conditions are good and that they will be open.


The club is now open to everyone of all competency levels; should the Covid-19 situation change the club may have to return to placing a minimum competency level upon participants. Should this happen participants shall be expected to self-assess at what stage they can suitably participate. The club may increase or decrease the stage at any point so please check back against the event or guidance to check the stage before arriving at your activity. See our COVID-19 Guidance for more details on the club's different reopening stages.

  • You must register for sessions on arrival (including spectators and volunteers)
